I didn’t stop running. I ran until my breath grew ragged and my stomach hurt. I didn’t know where I was going. I started slowing down, then tripped over a rock. Again.
“Clumsy” I muttered, looking at my knees, scraped for the second time in one day. My poor jeans were completely torn at the knees. My eyes, that had been holding back the tears, finally let go.
Sniffing, I looked around to see where I was. I was… nowhere. I mean, I was somewhere, but no one seemed to be around. I wiped my glasses and rubbed my eyes and looked around. It seemed to be some forest, only the trees weren’t very dense.
I was hungry. And so stupid. I had run away without thinking of food or clothing or hygiene.
“Smart move, Diana” I told myself, sighing. I looked through my bag and found a sandwich.
I carefully cut a rough quarter of it and ate it. I was still hungry, but I had to think of later.
I stared at the sandwich. Every part of me told me to eat it. I have low self control anyway. I ate it. Then I realized the horrible thing I just did.
I had no food left.
Okay, not a big deal. If you’re stuck in a forest (or somehing that resembles a forest) you eat berries and fruits, right?
I wandered around, looking for something to eat. I then saw a snake slither past me. It was huge, but that was not the problem.
The snake had two heads.
Yay for cliffhangers ^^. Hope you didn’t find it too short. Brownie points for anyone who know which monster this is.
